Lessons Learned – Process Management
Warmup question: Have you ever seen a process being too light or too heavy and how can you tell the difference?

* Barbara surveyed people outside the team to get their perceptions, then worked to correct processes in order to make a better impression
* Helped PMs to see that their cookie cutter approach was too rigid and heavy of processes – example: weekly meetings turned into stand up meetings and each meeting needed a goal, agenda and time to complete
* They made better estimations so that their “stakeholders” could send more projects their way.
* She started a PMO without any funds by networking the PMs
